    What saddle do you ride atm?
    Unfortunately, you won't find a saddle that fits your butt perfectly from the word go. Saddles are like shoes, you have to wear them in.
    Most cyclists upgrade their saddles at some stage. You need to find a saddle that is not too soft, and that is specifically designed around the male anatomy (I presume you are male?)
    Some of the better models are from Selle Italia and Specialized.
    Don't buy an el-cheapo saddle.
    Also get yourself a good pair of cycling shorts with proper padding.

    any saddle takes some getting used to and if you take even a couple of weeks off riding it will take you some time to stop getting saddle sore

    since everyone is different it is a good idea to see if you can cut a deal with your LBS to try some different saddles before you decide on one
